New Voyage Privé

Carefully selected by our experts especially for you

Your Destination

In a secluded location in the lovely village of Grasmere, the Macdonald Swan Hotel 3* boasts cosy accommodation in a historic coaching inn. A perfect base for total immersion into countryside living, guests can settle into a peaceful atmosphere whilst exploring the quaint towns of Keswick, Ambleside, Windermere and the stunning lakes.

A haven for walkers, the Lake District awaits and is ready to be admired. Loughrigg Terrace, Easedale Tarn, Alcock Tarn, Helm Crag and the Coffin Trail are shorter walks that are not to be missed, whilst more challenging feats include Helvellyn, Langdale Pikes, Fairfield Horsehoe and Scafell Pike. Brave the peaks of Coniston Old Man and Skiddaw for breathtaking scenery.  

Retrace the footsteps of William Wordsworth, who spent most of his life in and around Grasmere, and described it as “the loveliest spot that man hath ever known.” Visit Dove Cottage, Rydal Mount and the main fells to tap into his poetic inspirations and influences. Who knows... You might be inclined to weave together a few stanzas too!

Macdonald Swan Hotel 3*

Originally built in 1650 as a coaching inn, the charming Macdonald Swan Hotel 3* is one of the oldest hotels in the Lake District, and was even mentioned in William Wordsworth's poems "The Waggoner". The strategic position of this property allows for easy access to the number of stunning walks and cycling routes that the Lake District has to offer. 

With views of the Cumbrian countryside, this cosy hotel looks out over the Fells, and opens its doors with cosy log fires and a warming atmosphere that makes it the ideal base for exploring the area. With an on-site restaurant and bar, you'll never want for anything at this utterly charming escape!
